JLAB 2017

posted Jul 4, 2017, 9:41 PM by Kearny JROTC

    This year, our Academic Team made their way to Washington D.C. for the JLAB (JROTC Leadership & Academic Bowl) Championship. The first two levels of JLAB, leading up to the championship, consisted of being tested on JROTC, SAT/ACT, and current event related questions. Having rose into the top three percent of the competition out of thousands of JROTC schools from both across and outside of the United States, our team won their way to the nation's capital. There, our team went head to head against many other teams on a much wider variety of topics and questions. Congratulations on their achievement!

    Many of our cadets, along with those from other schools within our brigade, participated in the annual JCLC (Junior Cadet Leadership Camp) this summer. JCLC is a summer camp experience focused on helping cadets to improve their leadership, team building, and adventure training skills. Some of the activities at the camp included fishing, canoeing, horseback riding, and archery, along with many others. We hope that everyone was able to learn and grow as well as have fun during their time there.
